Distinctly Black Country Network - Paul Quigley

This is just a short circular to supporters of distinctly black country to update you on the progress of the network. I’m pleased to say we now have thirteen supporting organisations with a wide range of expertise and interests.
Our website,, is also continuing to develop. We now have financial support for a formal launch event, and I will be in touch with more details of this.
In the meantime, thanks very much to those of you made comments on earlier versions of the website … and if you have any more don’t hesitate to get in touch. We want to use it as a forum both to discuss what is different about the area, but ultimately to encourage people to explore the landscape for themselves (which is why we are including a ‘Where can I find it?’ question against every entry on our A-Z page).
Within the network we want to promote joint working and awareness of each other’s work. To that end our news page aims to be a place where we can post items about initiatives that promote a connection with the landscape (and particularly any community involvement). I should particularly draw your attention to the ‘Brierley Hillness’ events underway at the moment, but please get it touch if there is anything else you would like to post in this way.
Lastly, we have been in discussion about possible joint projects with network organisations and hope to develop this further.
